Boston, MA --- WPI sophomore Kristin Gallagher (Coventry, RI) has been named the NEWMAC Softball Player of the Week, as announced by the conference on Monday.

Gallagher, who was named the WPI Women's Spring Student-Athlete of the Week earlier in the day, was a hitting machine for the Engineers as WPI claimed six wins in eight outings last week during its spring break trip to Florida. The sophomore registered 13 hits in 22 at-bats to post a .591 batting average. Gallagher chipped in with nine RBI, five runs scored and a pair of doubles and did not commit an error in 17 chances at third base.

With tomorrow's New England opener versus Fitchburg State postponed, Softball (8-2) is slated to begin NEWMAC play on Saturday at Wheaton. First pitch is scheduled for noon.
